Notify of trade operations if this option is enabled, the client terminal will automatically send notifications about successful trade operations to a specified metaquotes id. The platform will also send notifications about any balance operations performed on the account as well as about the margin call state (in this case notifications are sent periodically, as long as the account is in the margin call state).
The first step to set up alerts for mt4 and mt5 is to configure the client. To configure the client, go to the tools menu and then options. Of the following settings, you only need to configure the ones that you intend to use. For example, if you are not going to use email notifications, you can skip those parameters.
Sending push notifications requires specification of the metaquotes id in the terminal settings. Metaquotes id is a unique identifier, which is assigned to each mobile terminal during installation on a device. Push notifications are an effective means to notify of events, they are instantly delivered to the mobile device and are never lost.
To get your id, go to your mobile device and open your metatrader 4 app.
Go to your desktop install of metatrader, click file-options select the notifications tab insert your metaquotes id into the field. Press ok, now your desktop mt4 can send notifications to your metatrader app.
If the push notification isnt working in one of my indicators, that may be because you didnt set the platform correctly or you are using a new buggy mt4 build. I use push notifications in all my released tools (more than 7,000 downloaded so far) without any problem.
